Season 2, Episode 16. After ending the Nicaraguan civil war, William Walker sets up the provisional government for his new "Republic of Nicaragua". The peace is short-lived as the surrounding Latin American countries join forces—with financial support provided by Cornelius Vanderbilt—to remove William Walker from power. This episode is Part 3 of 6 in the story of William Walker’s attempt at establishing his own Republic of Nicaragua.
